SANTIAGO, Chile —

Chile's police director says four officers will be disciplined for forcing student protesters to strip naked.

Gen. Gustavo Gonzalez told reporters before testifying to the Senate on Wednesday that 10 arrested students were forced to take their clothes off, including a minor girl and boy. They had been arrested for occupying their school in Rancagua, south of Santiago. The incident happened shortly after other students threw chairs at police and forced them to flee a school in the capital.

Gonzalez says the penalties he'll apply to the station commander, a major and two lower-level officers range from a formal warning to several days of arrest. He refused to identify the officers before testifying to the Senate's human rights commission.
